Sometimes, the problem is not with the teeth, but with the gums. A gumline that is too high, or too low, in relation to your teeth can be corrected with a simple cosmetic dental surgery. Longview dentist, Clint Bruyere, D.D.S. offers gum reshaping (also called gum contouring or tissue sculpting) to create an even gumline, and a beautiful smile.

Using precision skill and advanced techniques, your gumline can be sculpted to perfectly accent and frame your teeth. Dr. Bruyere performs most gum surgeries right here in his office; complex cases may require a referral to a gum specialist. Gum contouring may be performed separately, or in conjunction with other cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as porcelain veneers, bonding, or dental crowns, for a full smile makeover! If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile for any reason, you can count on the expertise of Dr. Bruyere and his associates. Call (903) 708-6116 today and schedule an appointment.
